Transportation & Warehouse – Distribution
MANAGE COSTS by IDENTIFYING extraneous EXPENSES
Warehouse and distribution services are an overhead expense that does not add value to the product. Managing costs during this part of the supply chain process is essential to protect and enhance ones’ profits. Improved efficiency is accomplished by using the proper equipment paired with the right measurement tools. We provide these critical tools from surface mounted floor scales (including drive over models); pallet jack scales to scale units mounted directly on almost any style lift truck. Eliminating wasted motion, time and effort increases profits and data accuracy.
“What gets measured gets improved.” Peter Drucker, considered the Father of Modern Management.
PREVENT FINES and PENALTIES
Carriers systematically verify shipment weights adjusting freight charges and adding penalty fees to shipping invoices. Consignees have begun to bill back these additional fees plus are tacking on their own processing/penalty fees. Having accurate shipment weights significantly reduces your exposure to these fees and penalties. And having documentation to refute carrier weight adjustments eliminates unwarranted expenses.
Package carriers – Postal, small package and LTL (less than truckload) companies are changing how shipping charges are calculated to meet the challenges of international commerce and de-regulation. The majority of goods coming into and exiting the United States are charged based on the space the shipment occupies and weight. Package carriers are moving toward calculating freight charges based on this principal called dimensional weights (DIM weights). Ask us about how coupling dimensioning machines with scales to automatically calculate DIM weights can help you reduce shipping expenses/penalties and position you to obtain more favorable discounted rates during pricing negotiations.
